I got infected (windows xp antivirus, or some similar name). I rebooted in safe mode, ran rkill fine, then an up to date Malware Bytes, which found and removed 3 problems. But after rebooting, anytime I run rkill.com or iExplore.exe, I get 3 cascading dialog boxed labeled "Error" with the message "installation failed." After that, rkill seems to run fine, but once found and terminated a "xe" process. I'm now trying an Ad-Aware full scan. Any idea what's causing these boxes to pop up and how to stop this behavior? I'm running Windows XP.
